Harvest Monday - 29th February 2016

By Mwillis
I have somehow managed to scrape together another small harvest! And when I say "small", I mean "small"...

This past year I grew 4 Celeriac plants. One rotted before reaching a useable size, and the other three were disappointingly small. The one seen above was the smallest. I think I'll give Celeriac a rest for a while, and try something else!
During the week I also picked the very last of the Brussels Sprouts, which I have already written about:

The basis of the soup was stock made with the carcass of a roast chicken (gravy and all, hence the dark color...), but it also included buckwheat noodles, Chinese Leaves (aka Napa Cabbage), and wafer-thin sliced pork. Additional flavourings were onion, garlic, galangal, Spring Onion and chilli. Let me assure you, this soup was wonderful!
